Mixed bag for Nyaudo from Nzoia draw

Head coach Dunstan Nyaudo was not too amused with the result as Ulinzi Stars drew with Nzoia Sugar at Afraha Stadium on Sunday 29th July

Two points dropped in the draw with Nzoia Sugar meant Ulinzi Stars dropped two places down the log to fifth after 24 matches and head coach Dunstan Nyaudo was not too amused with the outcome, especially after creating a horde of chances but failing to score with any but he praised his charges for creating the goal scoring chances.

The team went to the game at Afraha Stadium on Sunday 29th July needing a win to cap a great month that had seen a rise from a poor June but that wasn’t to be as the clash ended goalless and with a lot of chances missed.

The coach however called on the players not to dwell so much on the missed chances and start switching focus to the next game, against Sofapaka.

Cost us

“Truth is that we did not use our chances in the game but then the positive side of it is that we created chances. The players were just nervous after doing well with the build up play and unfortunately it cost us two points.

“We would have made a massive gain with three points from the game but we can’t keep lamenting over that; I think the mark of a big team like we are is to rise and correct those mistakes and eye better returns in the next game,” he said.

In the game, George Omondi was played as a right back, from his usual center back position and according to the coach, he was superb.

“He played extremely well; his crosses were good, his deep passes were great and he covered the flanks well both when attacking and defending. All these aspects are not qualities we will find in many defenders so I am happy with the way he played,” he added.
